3-20-2013 Webinar Followup - Heart of Learning and Teaching - Compassion Resilience and Academic Success

The Quality and Evidence Base Practice (QEBP) Practice Group recently hosted a webinar - The Heart of Learning and Teaching: Compassion, Resilience and Academic Success. Please follow this page for the webinar resources and future work on this topic.

Webinar description:

Every day in schools across the nation, students arrive in classrooms feeling hungry, tired, frustrated, and alone. They are often impacted by alcohol and other drugs, physical or mental health-related issues, homelessness, abuse, domestic violence, or are struggling with a learning disability and are at risk of dropping out of school. These students frequently lack vital connections to their family, their school, and their community.

In response to these critical student needs, this webinar will review The Heart of Learning and Teaching: Compassion, Resiliency and Academic Success which describes some of the collective efforts necessary to help students overcome trauma, demonstrate resilience, and success physically, emotionally, socially, and academically in the school setting. This publication is available online free of charge to all interested at http://www.k12.wa.us/CompassionateSchools/HeartofLearning.aspx

The webinar will be presented by two of the publication’s authors: Mona M. Johnson, MA, CPP, CDP (Chief School Behavioral Health, US Army Medical Command, Child, Adolescent, and Family Behavioral Health) and Ron Hertel, BA (Readiness to Learn, Compassionate Schools, Mental Health Learning and Teaching Support, Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction).

The webinar will review the following topics:

1) Overview of trauma, adverse childhood experiences, resilience and compassionate responses;

2) Understanding the importance of professional self-care as an ethical obligation;

3) Instructional principles, curricular domains and specific strategies for creating compassionate classrooms/schools; and

4) Examples of compassionate schools and academic success currently in action in Washington State and beyond.
